Japan
Japan were unfortunate to go out on penalties.

KOLKATA -- Japan's postmatch news conference after losing to England on penalties in the round of 16 of the Under-17 World Cup on Tuesday began with some words of commiseration for coach Yoshiro Moriyama and ended with ripples of applause as the former defender announced his departure.

Goalkeeper Curtis Anderson saved a penalty and then scored from the spot as England beat Japan 5-3 on penalties to enter the quarterfinals.

England had lost to Spain in the Euro U17 final in a penalty shootout earlier this year, but they showed tremendous composure on the night as substitute Nya Kirby scored the winning penalty after Curtis Anderson had denied Hinata Kida. It's England's third quarterfinal overall, and their first since 2011.

After nine days and an impressive ratio of 3.5 goals per match, the group stages of the U17 World Cup are over and it's time to get serious with some knockout football. From here, matches tied at full time will go straight to penalties.

The tournament hasn't been set ablaze so far and perhaps this is the time for real heroes. This is how the matchups look like.
